Few places in the world have struck as deep a chord in me than the Maasai Mara, and naturally, seeing it from the air in a balloon at sunrise made it all the more spectacular. I think that morning was perhaps the highlight of the entire trip for both of us.
I know it's unrealistic, but gosh darn it all I want for my birthday is a lion cub
A lone cheetah, relaxing after a meal. Only 50% of the cheetah's hunts are successful, and they last anywhere from 20 to 60 seconds. While cheetahs are the fastest land animals on earth, they are not endurance runners. They kill swiftly and must eat quickly, before their food is stolen by other predators.

Today is World Rhino Day. These incredible creatures deserve to be protected and not exploited for their horns.

South Africa has a serious problem in poaching the rhinoceros. According to the conservation organization Save the Rhino, 5,940 African rhinoceroses have died by their horns since 2008, and that number continues to increase, despite efforts to stop illegal activity. Now with concern to the top, it has decided to take action on the issue, moving 80 rhinos from South Africa to Australia. Basically, rhinos are becoming refugees.

Hi 🏽 @safari_heidi here.
I'm the one that sews your blankets and takes care of you while on safari 🤗
SafariBlankets started 2 years ago with the idea to make blankets that would tell a story. A story about the places your particular fabric comes from and the things it's seen. How it's traveled and what's it's made from.
The word 'safari' is the Kiswahili word for 'journey'.
•I would love to be a part of your next journey.
I've got 3 amazing, unique trips posted for 2018.
Check out the new website 🏽 (link in bio) for more details or just reach out to me I'd love to chat
